Shawinigan Water and Power 8

The Shawinigan Water & Power Company building in Hochelaga-Maisonneuve was transformed into two phases: one phase is the main red brick building on d'Orleans ave, which they kept and restored as a Coopérative d'habitation, which is cool. The second phase is on de Rouen and Jeanne d'Arc where the standard boring Samcon condos have been built on the old grounds of the power plant. In the following post, I show how the exterior of the massive transformation looks like. In this post I show the stunning interior. The sense of space of the interior is breathtaking. I don't know how much privacy there is when living there but the whole concept is fantastic. I wonder if the huge entrances, at the front and the back (pictured above) stay wide open during winter.
